Good items - especially on antique auction nights. Very pleasant and professional staff. Sometimes auctions are a bit slow but that seems to be because people want something for nothing. Staff are honest with silent bids ...have bid both ways and am happy with the outcome usually. Parking is a bit of a problem. I am an experienced bidder and have been attending auctions almost 30 years. Big Valley is one of the nicer ones. Suspect some of the negative comments are from rival auction places.
